For more than 100 years the KLUGE has set the standard as dictionary with regard to the origin and history of words of the German language. The first edition was published in 1883, and since that time it has been continually updated and revised. The KLUGE traces the history of the origin and changes in meaning of approximately 13,000 German words and loanwords that entered German. The etymological dictionary is not only an invaluable aid for linguists and language historians, it is also a treasure trove for anyone interested in the etymological origins of our vocabulary.

From Aal to Zypresse, the KLUGE provides comprehensive information on the origin and changes in form and meaning of all common German words, thus creating a "biography" for each word. In addition to the dictionary, KLUGE provides a concise introduction into the terminology of historical vocabulary research and an extensive bibliography on German etymology.

The new KLUGE represents a unique source of knowledge. Furthermore, it is a reliable guide to the origins of the language we use daily, - surprising discoveries are guaranteed!

The eBookPlus offers fine grained search criteria: headword, century of first documentation, words in foreign languages, literature references and full text. Completely in new official German orthography Represents current status of linguistic and etymological research Contains numerous new entries and articles With up-to-date references to every headword

Rezensionen zur Vorauflage

"Wer nur etwas Freude an "Sprache" hat, der raumt diesem wichtigen Woerterbuch gern einen zentralen Platz in seinem Bucherregal ein."
U. E. in: Romerike Berge, 2/2003 "Deutsch fur Liebhaber!"
In: Padagogik 2/2003

"Ein Liebstes aus dem Papiervolk der Bucher hervorzuheben, heisst es uber alle anderen zu stellen. Das scheint mir bei Menschen noch leichter. Fur viele mag es die lebensspendende Mama sein. Und so gibt es auch unter den Buchern eine Mama, die mir die liebste ist. Verschluge es mich auf eine einsame Insel, ware es nur halb so schlimm, wenn es sie mit dorthin verschluge: Dass ich die Sprache nicht verlerne, 'Der grosse Kluge', etymologisches Woerterbuch von De Gruyter. Ist auf meiner hiesigen Insel eine Bedeutung weggerutscht, weil mir die Neusprech des digitalen Aberglaubens in den Ohren pfeift, greife ich zum 'Grossen Kluge'."
Stephan Krawczyk in: Berliner Zeitung, 25.3.2000
